Stray Kids are considered a "self-producing" idol group as the members are almost always involved in songwriting and composing, and sometimes assist in arranging even before their official debut.[185][186] They have their in-house production team called 3Racha formed by three Stray Kids members: Bang Chan, Changbin, and Han,[187] who have been releasing multiple self-produced tracks on SoundCloud since 2017 and largely responsible for crafting Stray Kids' music with all members integral to the process.[188] To showcase their artistry, all of the members also have digital YouTube projects like "SKZ-Record" and "SKZ-Player", where each of them produced various songs or choreography, and Two Kids Song, where the members' paired to write, produce, and record an original song with the same beat sample.[188]

And it's title song "God's Menu" also contains wordplay from hanja "God" and hangul "Menu" (Korean神메뉴; RRsin-me-nyu; lit. God's Menu) but the pronounciation "sin-menu" (Korean신메뉴) can also means "new menu" in Korean, implied that they make this new menu of God.[188] For album Noeasy, the album title noeasy combine "no" and "easy" means "not easy", but it's pronounciation can became like "noisy".
